What is kitsch, and its main differences from other styles
Kitsch is one of the most excellent achievements of modern mass culture. It differs from other styles by extravagance. People who prefer this unusual style are most often courageous people who prefer not a cozy and comfortable style, but rather an original and abrupt decision. The kitsch style is a kind of bad taste for interiors that not everyone will choose - moreover, not many people will be able to live in this unusual and bright interior.
The main features that distinguish the style from other modern interiors are, first of all, the vulgarity, the combination of bright colors, cheap materials and furniture, rare things and so on. The main colors that spread the style of kitsch are aggressive colors: green, red, lime, bright purple, pink.
Kitsch is an unusual combination of country style, classic and famous futurism. All decorations and decorative elements are specially selected to shock others, thus clearly showing their life position and general attitude to life.

The kitsch style in the interior contains a wide variety of accessories that are quite difficult to imagine in a modern apartment. It is important to note that accessories must be carefully selected for the room in which you are going to embody this style. The most successful options will be a children's room, a cafe, a living room, restaurants and exhibitions containing art objects.
In the photo style kitsch you can see a huge number of accessories. And this is not surprising, because the interior in this style involves the use of many vintage accessories, as well as modern models of jewelry - in general, the room should have as many different knickknacks as possible that will significantly change its appearance.
Tip: A beige or pink room can be safely supplemented with white armchairs and side tables, as they will perfectly fit into the interior, as well as significantly diversify it. And the hinged ceiling with multi-colored lamps is a win-win version of a large blue or green room.
All accessories must necessarily match the style, that is, be bright and challenging. Unusual colorful paintings, bright vases, colored pillows scattered on the floor, artificial flowers, floor lamps with colored shades, massive curtains - all these accessories only underline the elegance and charm of style.

As mentioned earlier, the kitsch style in the interior contains only bright furniture. A dark room can be easily diversified with red, yellow, green armchairs, brown cabinets, as well as striped or checkered curtains. In a bright room, brown, dark blue, purple and marsh furniture will look perfect.
In many photos of the kitsch style, one can observe not only upholstered furniture, but also wooden furniture. However, it is worth noting that it is best used only in cafes or restaurants, since at home it will not look natural. Designers recommend using transparent tables in the living room or children's room, as they will perfectly fit into any color range of the style, as well as emphasize it well. The table can be decorated with a colored vase or a bright bouquet of artificial flowers.
Special attention should be paid to the carpet: it must be large, soft and as bright as possible. It is best to buy a carpet consisting of several colors, as it will fit perfectly into any room, while giving the furniture and accessories a completely different look. It is also important to note that the carpet must have a long nap, because often children play on it or adults sit (for this, by the way, small pillows are placed on the floor).

Tip: furniture for kitsch style is better to choose with an “old” accent, as it will give your room not only a perfect look, but will also significantly highlight all the features of the style. And yet, I would like to note the moment of choosing furniture, in particular chairs, dressers, pedestals and armchairs: it would be better if you prefer carved furniture on bent legs, which will give the room individuality and chic.
Some features of kitsch style
Looking at the photo with the interior of kitsch, you can see that designers in some cases use solutions that are not inherent in this style. For example, choose wallpaper with a pattern, sparkles, 3D and so on. This is not a forbidden method, but it requires maximum preparation, as in this situation you need to carefully choose not only the color scheme, but other accessories as well.
Another feature of the style is the presence of volume mirrors in the room. They create a magnificent atmosphere, as well as saturate the room with its own shades. Best of all mirrors will look in the living room or large room. In small rooms you can use small mirrors that they visually enlarged the room.
